Professional Staff

Ron Cheney, President, CPO (e)

Ron Cheney, CPO (e) and president of American Prosthetics & Orthotics, Inc., began his career shortly after graduating from high school when he was presented with two job opportunities, both involving creating products from wood. One was in cabinetry, and the other in prosthetics. By choosing prosthetics, Ron’s career has enabled him to provide a service that would help people improve their quality of life. From early on, Ron had commitment to the company and his patients, learning not only savvy business strategies to build APO into a strong company with a top-shelf professional staff, but continuing his own education in the profession. Ron is certified by the American Board for Certification in Prosthetics & Orthotics. Ron started his career at the Winkley Artificial Limb Co. in 1958. In the mid-1960s, the company was separated from Winkley and renamed American Prosthetics, Inc. Ron and three colleagues purchased American Prosthetics, Inc. in 1972. Ron acquired the entire firm in 1988. That purchase resulted in a total of eight offices in Iowa and one in Moline, Ill. It was renamed American Prosthetics & Orthotics in the 1990s to reflect its comprehensive services. The firm employs two generations of the family, too. Son Rod Cheney, CPO, is executive vice president of APO. His son Brent Cheney, CO, is APO’s Director of Material Management. Ron’s wife, Rikki, is Director of Internal Affairs. “I believe that if he had taken his job offer at a cabinet store, he’d own his own furniture business,” said Rod. “His work ethic and savvy would have propelled him to success no matter what path he had chosen.”
